Participation in the registry at Lahey helps to ensure that your personalized recommendations are carried through. We keep track of your appointments to ensure that they are scheduled according to your physician's recommendations. Patients may be contacted by letter to remind them to schedule their screening testing appointments as needed (for example, colonoscopies, endoscopies, etc.).
Additionally, women who fit the HNPCC criteria should undergo yearly gynecologic exams that include transvaginal ultrasounds and/or endometrial biopsies.
